The Brute - What's happening here?

Was anyone anticipating the opening of The Brute's registration? Check out the website: https://www.spreetouring.com/

Coming Soon

Any speculation?

Spree had their website royally f'd up by a hacker so I'll speculate the extra work has Don just a little behind. Great ride, small attendance.

The good news is the Brute web site is back. The bad news is the fees "have changed" and will hurt the event. Don put on a good ride in a good area and did a great job. Too bad he drank the DLD (sschilli) kool-aid.

It's a charity fundraiser, like the DD, HHH, et al. The maps are publicly posted for those wishing a free use of public domain.

Well I pulled the trigger and registered for all three in the Triple Crown Challenge. I figured since I am not doing a week long tour this year, I could do this. There is a route I can use here to prepare for the hills I will face. https://ridewithgps.com/trips/73454

2 weeks until Arcadia's Brute ride, and I am behind preparing for it! The weather just won't give me a break, cold, rain, SNOW! My longest ride to date is only 42 miles, and I plan on doing the 100k route, so would like to get a couple rides in that distance or more, but maybe a little flatter than I will experience riding the Brute. I ride a 30 mile loop with about 1800' on it, and would like to do it a couple times consecutively but do not have the time after work, and weather sucks on my days off. Just 4 more days off before the event!
